Blue #3 is about the same as red #5 too.
It certainly sounds rich.

unless that is a brand new plug, you're wasting your time! That plug looks old. very old!
Well here is a pic of my plug color and the soot on my license plate. What do you think?

For plug reading, I find it is very hard with out leaded fuel. You got to hold it at the one throttle position for ages (riding it), then stop the engine straight away. I don't bother anymore, I just go on feel. Not like the good old 2 bangers.....
Tried the JD Red needle in the 4th clip position with a new plug and took the bike for a little ride. Checked the plug and it looked a tad bit to whitish/grayish for my liking so i moved it back to the 5th clip position. Stutter actually seemed to be a little worse along with a little backfire. I'm thinking it may be lean on my pilot? Happens when i accelerate lightly and hit the 1/4 throttle position and goes away after the throttle is moved passed that position.
Have you got an adjustable fuel screw? If not, they are a very worthy investment for a couple of bucks.
To find your pilot jet size (usually 48), raise your idle speed to like a fast idle. Adjust your fuel screw in then out till you find the point of max rpms. It is real noticeable. This is 'setting your fuel screw'. If this is more than 2 1/2 turns out, go to a bigger pilot jet.
When jetting a bike, I find it easiest to set the pilot jet first, then main jet, then needle.
